Catherine "Cathy" Valverde age 49 of Clovis, NM died at PRMC in Clovis, NM after fighting for 3 years to battle Stage 4 Colon Cancer. Cathy went peacefully surrounded by those who loved her dearly. Despite Cathy's illness, she did her best to remain humble and rarely ever complained about the level or amount of pain she was in. She was the most loving and considerate partner, grandma, mom, daughter, sister, and friend anyone could ever ask for. Cathy always went out of her way to check on others. Even during her worst times, she was more concerned with how you were doing. Cathy loved binge watching some of her favorite TV shows, visiting with friends and family, caring for her grandkids, and spending time with the love of her life, Bubba. Cathy touched so many lives and will forever remain in the hearts of her loved ones!
